Mission Statement

Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

Description

Make-A-Wish Wisconsin grants over 300 wishes per year to children ages 2 1/2 to 18 living with a critical illness. Our goal is to grant every child eligible for our program a wish.

Hundreds of volunteers are needed across the state in a variety of capacities to help bring hope, strength and joy to wish children and their families. Wish granting, helping with special events and fundraisers, and assisting with office projects are a few examples of how volunteers make a valuable difference.

Make-A-Wish Wisconsin is a not-for-profit organization that relies solely on the generosity of individuals and businesses to fulfill its mission. Gifts of cash and investments, estate gifts, and in-kind contributions are some of the ways funds are raised, and 77% of every dollar raised goes directly to granting wishes.

Make-A-Wish Wisconsin is one of 59 chapters of Make-A-Wish Foundation of America. Over 350,000 wishes have been granted across the nation since the Foundation's inception in 1980, and every day, more than 25 wishes are granted across the U.S.

It is an amazing group. I had a friend that had only a month left to live and all she wanted was to hockey with her school team, but she was too weak to walk. They made her a special wheel chair to go on the ice and let her play with the team until she was content. She was so happy and they are truly a blessing.
